Tributes should not be a bed of lies…Stop!

“Do not speak ill about the dead”… So does it mean that I should not be true to myself when I talk about a person who is dead?

For crying out loud Jane Doe was a very mean person while she was alive. She wasn’t even loved one bit, not even a person from her family held her dear to heart because of how troublesome she was and then boom! I am reading tributes written about her and I am shocked. Like is this Jane Doe or some other individual? 

READ: DEATH OF LOVED ONES, PRIOR GESTURES

Truth is a man cannot be more than what he is, whether dead or alive. If a man was very wicked while he was alive, if a man was an alcoholic, if a man was promiscuous, if a man was dreaded…etc. a beautiful tribute intended to change the narrative or appease the dead because we want to walk the good path is useless. why say otherwise?

READ: IS DEATH AN OPEN SESAME?

In my opinion, a dead man more than the living deserves the sincerity of his loved ones and others who knew him. It’s crazy that you lie to someone’s face when they are alive, and then you also lie after they die.

Let’s endeavor to coat our tributes with the truth instead of a bed of lies. People should read and marvel at what kind of soul he/she must have been while alive. It is appalling to note that in a world where just a pinch of the population is nice, one can hardly come across a negative remark in a tribute. Does it mean that people are automatically sanctified at their death? If you were unhappy with me while I was alive, I beg you, do not cloth it with the finest of words when I die for it will only be death a second time.

I think people just generally feel sympathy for the dead.

I think people generally feel sorry for them selves when another person is dead not necessarily the dead person.

Speaking Ill of the dead doesn’t show any humanity at all no one is holier than the other, It’s called last respects for a reason

I do not speak ill of the dead because I’m afraid they might knock my head off.

I believe when people die, they have the power to hurt the living, this belief is the reason why I only say nice things about people when they die even if they were terrible while they were alive.
